Listen: Mister Robot, Mister Robot News, Antonio Massaro discussed on Post Show Recaps
"Senio mobely mark cash the one and only Antonio Massaro Holo friend. Hello Josh I had no idea we would be starting by. Eulogizing are dead son then you don't know me very well at all because this is the one thing that I am still so hung up on with Mister Robot. I do know there's part of you and me and there's part of me and you and we are two sides to the same point I e. Yes absolutely oh my Gosh Antonio. It's been over a year since we've talked about Mister robot. It feels crazy to me. It's been more than over a year. It's like almost two years at this point right getting close. I think December twenty seventeen right is the last episode of season. Three if I'm remembering that right. I'm pretty sure that's right. It's been of long little while since we've since we've had new episodes of Mister Robot to talk about. It's just going to be a short little while at this point as this podcast is is reaching your feeds we are within spitting distance of the October six final season premiere of Mister Robot. The final season is almost upon us. It's going to be thirteen thirteen episodes and out. That's it thirteen more hours probably longer than thirteen hours with thirteen installments of Mister robot remaining before we say goodbye friend. How are you feeling in the face of that Antonio. I'm feeling like the show is going out on its own terms on. Sam Smells terms and I'm very comfortable with that. We always talked about on this podcast that the show probably had a four to five season arc. That's something that cms mail the Creator Executive Producer show runner. The tour of the show has said pretty much from the jump that this is what was arked out when they sat down to break season four. They looked at the story they had they looked at how much yes they had left and said you know what I think. This is it I think season four is it thirteen episodes josh the most episodes since we had season to season two also had longer episodes than an hour in season two so it was more than thirteen episodes worth of TV's worth of material so I don't know what this season will be like but I do think as far as mister robot goes. This is probably more like a season and a half. Would you say of story not just a one season of story with thirteen episode order order yes so Sam Esmail had been saying in the fallout of season three that the ending was insight and along the way had been saying like wasn't quite sure if mister robot would be a series that was worth four seasons five season somewhere in between that and so I think the difference has been split where rather than going with two final vinyl seasons of shorter length. They're they're doing one. Mondo sized final season so thirteen episodes like you say it's the it's the biggest one yet to some people. Let me be a little troubling if there are people who are still triggered by season two. I know that you and I have been a vocal chamber. It's really all things mister robot so. I don't think you and I are too mad about the episode length but I think you're right. I think that what we're getting into is probably going to be fairly significant on a on a story level compared to what what we have gotten in the past although at the same time and people who are just tuning into this podcast for the first time maybe getting like their first dose of Mister Robot News at all if you haven't seen trailers ars if you haven't been reading anything about it but Antonio this is the longest season yet and yet it stands to cover the least amount of time in Mister Mister robot history judging by the fact that this is this is the Christmas season of robot is what we're getting into that the the stage is set for one final season of thirteen episodes that is going to span think a little less than a week of real time story time based on what has been said so far all surrounding the Christmas Twenty fifteen holiday. That's exciting. Kevin mcallister's shaking in his snow-boots. Oh no I well. You say it's going to cover. Perhaps the shortest period of time but that that's of course leaving out the time travel that's going to happen. God Talk About Greg decades that gave worth at a time I think at the end of the season surely. We said the last episode December two thousand seventeen. We were nestled snug in our beds little did we know although although Josh I think we've talked about Mister robot having a little bit of a a touch of the Christmas spirit from season two so we speculated in the past what Mister Robot Christmas episode US old would look like it turns out. We're getting a whole season of Mister Robot Christmas pretty amazing. I'm pretty excited about it.."
